Area: GaliciaWe are a little, easy going family (me, my husband and my 3 years old daughter) that live in a medium size Galician city: A Coruña. Many years ago I lived in different countries, and now I miss so much speaking and being with foreign people. I would like also that my daughter could listen/speaking German or English, and that she would meet people from all over the world. I´m really interested in German speakers, but of course everyone is welcome! The work is very easy, I apreciate someone that helps me with cooking or cleaning, and specially, baby sitting in another language. All of this, no more than 3-4 hours per day, Monday to Friday. You will enjoy the authentic Galician athmosphere with us :)
Area: NormandyI am a retired journalist/English teacher who has lived abroad a great deal. I live in a small hamlet in Normandy with my 3 Shetland ponies, 8 cats and a dog. I have a house, a rental cottage and about a hectare of land including garden and fields. I love talking to people and have a circle of both French and English friends in a delightful area known for hiking trails, water sports on the river and good food.

Area: Top of the South Island of New ZealandWhen our family home was built, in the latter part of the reign of Queen Victoria, it stood on the southern shore of Nelson's Haven with fat little Weka running up and down the strand. Now the vibrant and exciting city of Nelson has grown up and outwards around us, but our home - a Bed and Breakfast Guest House (B&B) - remains a peaceful and helpful haven for travellers with all of our city's attractions just a short stroll from our front gate. Our guests can amble to the nearby Miyazu traditional Japanese gardens and listen to the water bell, take a look at the new wharekai on Whakatu Marae, or simply sit on our verandah and enjoy the fragrance of our irish roses in the front garden. On Friday afternoons, the Farmers Market is just opposite us in Founders Heritage Park while Saturday morning sees many of our guests off to visit the `World-famous-in-New Zealand' craft and artisan market in nearby Montgomery Square where they mingle with locals poking organic vegetables. Although crystal chandeliers hang from ceilings more than eleven feet high downstairs, we do have a new 21st Century hot water system, satellite dish, fast wirelesss Internet and the Gold, Blue and Rose Rooms used by our paying guests have air-conditioning and en-suite shower rooms.
Area: Valencian CommunityMy name is Paloma, I live in Alicante (Alacant) and I am 53 years old. I’m teaching mathematics and Spanish to foreigners in an adult education school. At the moment my son is working in Madrid and he comes back home once a month, so, I have one room free. I like doing creative photography which has been exhibited in several places. Usually I do meditation and go hiking but in summer I do water activities. I’ve been studying English for 3 years and I need to improve my conversation. I’ll happily host native women speakers of English language for one or two weeks in exchange for a few hours language practice per day. I live in the seaside town of Alicante. As you can see in the pictures, Alicante is a tourist place with a large and beautiful beach, sun and blue sea. There are a lot of places to walk near the sea, sunbathe, have a drink, go out, go shopping…
